Hi Sharon,

Our case officer is Virginia, but we haven't heard anything from her since February so I'm hoping that's a no news is good news situation. Do some case officers seem to work differently to others?

Thanks, Kiera

We are also in the hoping no news is good news category. It appears that most people are getting news at 10 months but I always get a little more excited when I see people getting visas from my case officer (DP).

Hey everyone

How much time do you get to enter the country once your visa is granted?

Also, once the visa is granted are you able to enter the country right away? Thanks!

Yes. When granted it's effective immediately.

Thanks for your help! I've been on other forums where everyone seems really tense and a little unpleasant, it's nice to find a thread where everyone is supportive and genuinely happy for each other when visas are granted! Good luck everyone!

Hello sharonmstanley,

A must entry date will be applied when your visa is granted. This is typically a year from when you did your medical and police checks.

If you need more time to move, you can always enter Australia for a week or even a day to activate your visa. By entering and clearing immigration at any airport in Australia will automatically activate your visa.
